Louie Bretana

Louie was a Creative Director and an advertising executive before fate blew him to the shores of Aotearoa. However, his migration did not give him the opportunity to continue with his career in the New Zealand advertising industry. As a result, he took this as an opportunity for reinvention, to pursue a contemporary art practice that will allow his work to engage in colonial discourse and racial power dynamics through relational aesthetics, sculpture and wearables. He has exhibited in Auckland, Tauranga and Wellington.
